Spurious errors in damp weather

Hi all

I have had spurious errors occurring with my car, including High Diesel Temperature (which produces a standing fault) and the dimmer on the display dimming itself down, and putting itself into Night Panel Mode!

I've identified that these errors only occur when it's been raining. So, in the great tradition of Italian electrics, can anyone give me an idea of where the culprit wiring, connector or fuse might be and how I might look at waterproofing it?

Brera 2.2 JTS

My radio stops working completely on mine when it's been raining and requires the fuse to be taken out and put back in for it to then work! I haven't managed to get to the bottom of it yet. Wouldn't be an Alfa without some character though would it
